William P. Anderson

Professor emeritus in the Department of Religious Studies
“I met Bill in the late ’70s, and we immediately had a great bond and a wonderful relationship. He was one of the smartest, funniest, most humble, unassuming and extremely approachable persons I ever met. I learned to be a good teacher from him. I remember him once saying to me that you can only teach by asking questions and not by giving answers. I followed his advice.”
—Joseph Saliba ’79, engineering professor and former provost

Ron Katsuyama

Professor emeritus in the Department of Psychology
“Ron was a wonderful teacher and mentor for both undergraduate and graduate students. He had a unique combination of intellect, social consciousness and optimism, as well as compassion and empathy for others, especially for the vulnerable or disadvantaged. Before and after his retirement, Ron truly embodied UD’s mission of learn, lead and serve. Ron was a very kind, loyal and helpful friend, and I will deeply miss him.”
—Roger Reeb, psychology professor

Dan Mars

Research Institute sustainment technologies transition team member
“Dan was a well-known and well-respected member of the Air Force maintenance community and a fixture in the corrosion prevention and control office. Dan’s teammates knew him not only as an expert with encyclopedic knowledge of maintenance operations, but as a friend who cared about everyone. He was a ‘chief’s chief’ and will be greatly missed.”
—Rick Iannacchione, UDRI group leader
